cane creek crank preloader is a work of art should be included on all 30mm cranks
does the cane creek preloader fit to the easton crank? It says it fits Race Face, is that the same cinch as the Easton?

it will fit on any 30mm spindle

Couple questions for the technocrats out there:

1. Does anyone (like RaceFace or ??) make a shorter spindle than Easton's 129mm road cinch spindle?
Like 125 or even 127mm?

2. Does anyone know if the Cinch spindle pattern is the same or different from Hollowgram spindles?

Pardon my ignorance, any info would help.

Does anyone know if the easton chainrings shift well?

Just swapped the stock plastic preload adjuster for the cane creek unit, looks very nice and works perfectly.

Well I rolled the dice and bought a Hollowgram 122mm spindle based on some online photos alone,
and viola', it appears to be the same as the Easton spindles. The Easton Cinch cranks bolt right on.

By using this 122mm instead of the stock 129mm Easton spindle, the Q drops to 143mm (where it should have been in the first place!).

EDIT 11/13: The Stages size "C" spindle is also 122mm, and has the same spline pattern.
I also found out that the SRAM 3-pc crank spindles use the same pattern.

Yes, too tiny at only 100.75mm.
And their "B"size is 113.5mm.

Dont think the Stages spindles will work with Easton, the spline pattern has different rotation on DS and NDS.

What chain rings are being used for a 46/30? I'd want 12 speed compatible. If the shifting isn't great, the weight savings is worthless.

Yes, the stages NDS arm has different rotation than easton DS.

Spindles from RF/Easton/Cannondale all has same rotation on both sides.

Stages spindle has different rotation so has to be used with NDS stages arm.

Edit. What I ment in previous post is that you cant use a stages spindle between Easton arms on DS and NDS.

What tools and/or spare parts do/did you need to switch the Easton spindles with the cannondale ones? Any guides or manuals, videos etc one might look at re: how to swap a stock spindle out..? Would be highly appreciated because I've always been a bit unhappy with the Easton's stock width and q-factor

Cheers,
